Getting Ready for The Rain

Most of us were caught totally by surprise when it rained on Shabbat Chol Hamoed Succot. At least those of us who are shomrei Shabbat hadn't a clue that there was going to be a downpour in the HolyLand.

I had been out with my youngest granddaughter.  We had taken shelter from the sudden strong winds and were in a nearby playground with a doll (and carriage,) who lives in my house and was introduced to people by the "scene stealer" as her tinok, baby.  Suddenly it began to drizzle lightly.  A little while later it stopped and we went inside.  About an hour after that there was a serious downpour.

It usually rains when the temperature is much colder.  In Israel we don't usually have the right clothes for warm rain.  We don't even have a word for "raincoats."  I've been having trouble trying to sell the adorable windbreaker/rain jackets for kids we have stocked in Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin. Davka, this year we do have some to sell for kids.

Aren't they cute?
